2019 Revision

The group identified only two areas where revision of the 2017 Code was required, the definition 7.0 Vehicle Salvage Categorisation Flow Chart was amended and the words Total Loss removed, it was felt by the group that most vehicles that are dealt with as total loss were deemed repairable salvage, the term total loss describes something which cannot be repaired and caused an element of confusion.

The second area of change was 9.4 Historic Classic Vehicles where it was felt the wording required amendment as it was apparent that it was open to interpretation and allowed vehicles to be uncategorised that were outside the scope and interpretation intended by this clause.
